Tom and Jerry racist? No, the real bigots are those who want to rewrite history, writes sociology professor FRANK FUREDI

a12iggymom's Blog

For more than 70 years, their cat-and-mouse capers have enthralled young people across the globe. Violent, hilarious and often somehow poignant, Tom and Jerry’s only crime has until now been to encourage children to watch tele-vision when they should have been doing their homework, tidying their bedrooms or performing some other worthwhile task.

This week, however, they fell foul of the censors at Amazon, which seems to have taken its lead from Cromwell’s Puritans. The company says Tom and Jerry cartoons must carry a warning that ‘they contain some ethnic and racial prejudices that were once commonplace in American society’.

The particular focus of Amazon’s reproach is the portrayal of the black maid in the cartoons, known as Mammy Two Shoes because only her lower half ever appears on the screen. Her character, apparently, is nothing more a crude racial stereotype. ‘Such depictions were wrong then and are wrong today,’…

Updated: Saturday, October 4 2014, 02:23 PM EDT

Dallas (AP) — The Dallas hospital treating the lone U.S. Ebola patient says an emergency room doctor who initially treated and released him did have access to the man’s travel history, after all.

Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas issued a news release late Friday saying Thomas Duncan’s travel history was available to all of the hospital workers who treated him during his initial visit, including the doctor.

It said Thursday that a flaw in the electronic health records systems led to separate physician and nursing workflows, meaning Duncan’s travel history didn’t appear in the doctor’s.

Duncan fell ill after traveling from Liberia to Dallas and was sent home after that initial emergency room visit.

He returned two days later and was diagnosed with Ebola…

Audit questions costs for Thruway events Authority defends food, party bills, Cuomo to go on bus tour, to defend his pathetic record

Joseph Spector

Albany Bureau Chief

ALBANY — A state audit released Friday ques­tioned the state Thruway Authority [Cuomo] for dropping $8,000 on a holiday dinner for employees and spend­ing $3,630 on food for a two-day staff conference.

“Authority policy per­mits employee recogni­tion and service awards,” the audit from Comptrol­ler Thomas DiNapoli’s of­fice said. “While such a policy fosters employee morale, the policy should provide guidance as to reasonable amounts for such expenses.”

The audit examined 113 payments for discretion­ary spending[frivilous] totaling $87,840 from 2010 through 2012.

Auditors questioned 10 payments totaling $14,557, saying it’s “un­clear how the authority determined the reason­ableness of the expenses.”

Those included eight payments totaling $9,457 for various employee rec­ognition events, including almost $8,000 for the holi­day dinner. The other two payments totaled $5,100 for food at staff confer­ences, including $3,630 for one two-day staff con­ference.

In a response to the au­dit,

a12iggymom's Blog

This is deceiving…children are the major victims, what looks like a cold progresses quickly and kills quickly. Enterovirusis nothing but the common cold…D68 is a rare and deadly disease. Children who don’t die are left with polio like disabilities…and this is all from the illegals the government sent across the nation. This virus was imported and is now running rampant is areas these illegals were settled in!

Staff report

Ontario County Pub­lic Health confirmed a case of D68 in the county on Friday, saying that the adult pa­tient had a history of asthma and is recover­ing.

EV-D68 tends to cir­culate in the summer and fall and causes symptoms very similar to a cold or influenza. People with EV-D68 may have body aches, runny nose, cough, sneezing or fever.

Children and those with asthma are at in­creased risk for more se­vere illness.

The virus spreads through contact with sa­liva of…

“CDC is lying! … and If they’re not lying, they are grossly incompetent.” microbiologist Dr. Gil Mobley

Dear NaturalNews readers, Piece by piece, a case is building that shows the U.S. government may be actively encouraging the spread of Ebola in America.
As microbiologist Dr. Gil Mobley recently said, “CDC is lying! … [and] If they’re not lying, they are grossly incompetent.”

Here are ten pieces of evidence that raise all sorts of red flags:

Rochester Deputy Mayor Leonard Redon pleads guilty to DWI

a12iggymom's Blog

Staff report

Image_11.jpgQUILT Y!! Leonard Redon:

Rochester Deputy Mayor Leonard Redon, who was arrested on a misdemeanor driving while intoxicated charge in March, pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge Friday.

Redon was arrested March 19 after State Po­lice pulled him over for speeding on Interstate 490. He failed several parts of a sobriety test, registered a 0.13 percent blood-alcohol level and originally pleaded not guilty to the misdemeanor DWI charge.

“Len has expressed deep regret for his lapse in judgment,” Mayor Lovely Warren said in a statement. “There is pre­cedent under previous ad­ministrations for allowing individuals to continue to serve following a misde­meanor plea, as long as the transgression was not on city time or relat­ed to city business and their employment rec­ord was meritorious, as is the case with Deputy Mayor Redon.” A City Court judge ruled this summer that the traffic stop and ar­rest were lawful…

qatar_awareness_campaign_logo

Dear Mr. Albert Gore:
This letter is being sent to you on behalf of the Qatar Awareness Campaign Coalition. The purpose is to inform you and the public of the activities of Qatar, the country which owns Al Jazeera America, the network which was established following your sale of CurrentTV to Al Jazeera for $500 million in 2013.
As cited below, in fact, you and your business partner, Mr. Joel Hyatt, engaged in two major transactions with Qatar: first the purchase of Newsworld International in 2004, from which you launched CurrentTV; secondly, the selling back of the station to Qatar to broadcast Al Jazeera America, for the price of $500 million.
We urge to you read the information below, which includes evidence that Qatar is arguably the preeminent sponsor of terror in the world today. It is a benefactor of the genocidal armies of ISIS, al Qaeda, and Boko…

Associated Press

NEW YORK — New York City would stop honoring detainment orders from U.S. immigration officials without a warrant from a federal judge, according to legislation that will be proposed before the City Council next week. The bill also stipulates that even with a judge’s warrant, the New York

DC-0000340922

Police Department is permitted to detain the subject only if the suspect is convicted of a “violent or serious crime.” Moreover, the city’s Department of Corrections would be forced to curb its enforcement of civil immigration laws, and the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement would be made to close its facility on Riker’s Island, the city’s largest jail.

The measure, if enacted, will be the latest attempt by the City Council to ease the obstacles faced by immigrants who live in New York without legal documentation. “By further limiting I.C.E.’s role in the detention and deportation of…
